BETA's 40th anniversary of improving communities together

BETA Group, Inc. (BETA) is proud to celebrate the firm’s 40th anniversary in 2022. As we reflect on the last four decades of service to communities throughout New England, we are especially grateful for our loyal clients, employees, and business partners.

Founded in 1982 by Michael E. Grilli, PE, BETA started with just three employees working out of a small office in Rhode Island. From its inception, BETA has sought to improve communities through integrated solutions. Over the last 40 years, BETA has grown to include more than 150 employee-owners working in six offices throughout New England and offers a continually expanding range of planning, engineering, landscape architecture, and environmental services.

Throughout the years, BETA has been named to Engineering News-Record’s Top 500 Design Firms; earned the Best of Business Award from the Hartford Business Journal; and has received accolades from industry organizations including the American Public Works Association, American Council of Engineering Companies, American Society of Landscape Architects, and Women’s Transportation Society. Additionally, the firm’s personnel and staff are regular recipients of awards from their peers and industry organizations.

“I am proud to work with some of the most talented engineers, planners and landscape architects in New England,” says Joseph D’Alesio, PE, BETA’s President and CEO. “This anniversary is a great opportunity to reflect on the remarkable difference we’ve made in our communities, while also planning for the future growth and evolution of our firm.”

BETA is excited to commemorate this incredible milestone as we continue to work on exciting, sustainable, and innovative projects, and build lasting relationships for the future.
